Jacobs Space Exploration Group (JSEG) is comprised of 10 companies and is located at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL (ranked #11 in Best Places to Live by U.S. News). JSEG has been a primary contractor for NASA since 1989 and supports marquee NASA programs, including the Space Launch System, International Space Station, space optics fabrication, earth and space sciences and advanced propulsion system development. As a partner in NASA’s next generation of space exploration, our jobs are literally history in the making by challenging today, reinventing tomorrow.
The computed tomography (CT) technician will support NASA Marshall Space Flight Center’s Nondestructive Evaluation team as part of the EM21 Damage Tolerance Branch. The CT technician will be responsible for the evaluation of development articles as well as test and flight hardware. A CT scanner is used to produce an internal structural image by taking sequential, repetitive x-ray images along the length of an object. Each image represents an individual layer of the total picture. By combining these layers, a 3-D image of an object is produced. By using a 3-D image, engineers can easily view the internal structure of an article and identify potential anomalies, such as cracks or voids. MSFC’s scanner is similar to those used in the medical industry for creating 3-D images of the human body but operates at higher energy levels (2-MeV linear accelerator) to image through much denser material.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
HS diploma or GED or equivalent, and at least 2 years of general experience.
The following skills/experience are highly desired:
Some college in an engineering field
3D modeling experience
Proficient with Microsoft Office applications (Word, Powerpoint, Excel)
Willingness to learn and be a self-starter
